houses are better investments, just saying. and before you throw 6k at your car you might want to think about a daily driver. But good luck anyways, I'd really love to see this project when its done.

Oh I already have a house that I aquired when I was younger about 18 from my godparents and The deed is in my name. When they pass on I will be moving in. Its a 5 bedroom with inground pool and 3 bay garage im excited for that. But right now I want to build something serious that will put a smile a mile long on my face, and 6k is not that bad. I havent even totalled it up yet haha.

It will be then a $2,500 NG, they just don't hold their value. As long as you go into this knowing that, all is well.

Don't buy a Viggen, it'll just be a more expensive platform to mod. Plus, I've seen more performance out of a modded 9-3 over a modded Viggen. Take your time with the mods and leave the cosmetic mods for last. I went with the Spec Stage 3+ because it holds more torque and is also more drivable than the Puck style Stage 3. Unfortunately, Nick at GenSaab isn't doing the flywheel for a while, looking for a new manufacturer. DON'T FORGET THE ECU! And the Saab Sport exhaust and a cone style (K&N or GenSaab) air filter are good starts to help her breathe better. Also, You should be running at least 17" wheels. You can eBay some Saab refinished ones for $100 ea or a set of Viggen copies for $500. Good luck. Let's see it when it's done.

Why would he need at least 17" rims? That's just stupid!
